Gene Simmons: I did not endorse Mitt Romney

The KISS frontman is irked by media reports that Mitt Romney is his 2012 pick. All caps irked:

I HAVE NOT MADE UP MY MIND.

I have NOT endorsed Gov Romney for President.

I have NOT endorsed Pres Obama for another term as President.

I DO believe Gov Romney has more qualifications (in fiscal economic areas) than our President.

But I have to hear more from both candidates.

I HAVE NOT MADE UP MY MIND.

Simmons added that he still wants to “hear what both Gov Romney and Pres Obama have to say.”

The Twitterverse chimed in with suggestions on who Simmons might endorse instead:

And of course, everyone’s favorite for 2012:

    Gene is not eligible to be President. He was born in Haifa Israel. Then again…

  • David Paitsel

    Nothing against Gene Simmons, but I’m not exactly holding my breath waiting for him to endorse someone. Obama has to go, and I don’t care who may or may not say otherwise.

    I don’t pay much attention to celebrity endorsements because I don’t think they mean that much, BUT it would be nice to see one publicly endorse a republican candidate and not be ashamed of it or back down from the backlash that will ultimately ensue.
